This pattern and photo tutorial guides you through a basic pair of mittens knit on double pointed needles (DPNs).

Conductive yarn is knit with the working yarn as one strand in the upper hand and thumb of the mitten, enabling you to control touch screen devices like smart phones and tablets.

Yarn: Two skeins of worsted or aran weight yarn (shown: Kollage Yarns Glisten in 7317), stainless steel thin conductive yarn available from Adafruit

Needles: US size 7 (4.5mm) double pointed needles, or adjust to obtain gauge of 5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch

Optional: DPNs in one size smaller than main needles for tighter wrist ribbing

Notions: scrap yarn, stitch markers, tapestry needle
